This is especially so if the filesystem is stored in an ordinary file, which would require separate configuration of a loopback device and a devmapper target before the filesystem could be accessed.
cryptmount was created to make it as easy for ordinary users to access encrypted filesystems on-demand using the modern devmapper mechansism as it was to use the older, now deprecated, cryptoloop methods. This offers the following advantages:
